"Illusion Is the First of All Pleasures." ~Oscar Wilde
Oh what wonderful transformations... your fur babies are so spoiled. Still smiling at your Lego House comment on my Post... I've always believed the older Homes have character and a Soul... perhaps the newer ones can develope the essence of a Soul through creative decorating that gives even a tract Home distinction and showcases the personality of the inhabitants... you go Girl... I'm LOVING the Soul you are putting into your Lego House! *wink*Dawn... The Bohemian
Well I'm sure as heck starting to now that I know you! Must admit because I'm such a nutkin for bed coronas I see them in everything! But NOT in a coffee table!! Bravo my friend! I'm heading over to the Goodwill tomorrow with my new vision...Maybe I can find some dang thing that I can finally paint. I'm getting a complex. Oh and NO you din't give me a maudlin...WYNQUE! Lol!! I warned you I was gonna do the dead bird thing.....Vanna's winky house of death.
Well I'm going to name him Narci...because he IS one pretty pretty boy!.... Lol! Vanna
LOL! While you are out thrifting, remember that serpentine dresser drawers make awesome ciel de lits. If you find a table you want to use but the legs are attached, remember you can use finials (curtain rod ends work too) to cover the screw hole and fit right in the same place! Picture frames work but they require very light fabric. Old bench tops work too, as do armoire crowns (then the armoire doors can be used as shutters on your window!)...The two composition companies have lovely swags you could apply!Ask me how to make a victorian settee or headboard from dining room chairs!Kiss Narcisssus goodnight!
Andie!! Where are yooouuu hoooo?? I'm needing an Andie fix! Are you creating a citadel with coffee filters or somethin? *winks*...I'm holding my breath in anticipation... Getting kinda blue....just sayin' Vanna
Dear Vanna... thanks for stopping by and joining us for Tea, my Grand-Daughter wants me to photograph all our Tea Parties now that I have a Blog... she envisions herself as somewhat of a celebrity now that she's seen herself in Posts! *Smiles* I love the idea you have of giving Tea Cups to Guests as their parting gift... and the hats... I've thought about collecting some Vintage Hats to wear to our Tea Parties just for fun, especially old Fedoras and prissy hats with Millinery Flowers and netting... have a wonderful weekend... Dawn... The Bohemian
Oops... Dear Andrea... just realized I messed up and Vanna was the next Tea Party comment I was going to respond to!!!! So Sorry... you both are so much fun I've enjoyed connecting with the two of you! Yes, it is too bad we don't live closer.Dawn... The Bohemian
Vanna, not coffee filters...how silly! Coffee PODS! They keep the invading armies at bay best...In that I have been inspired by my newfound blog friends, I have been busy "making" as Gracie would say.I finally framed many of the paintings I had, and hung them (although I have not yet painted my walls), finished painting the ugly brick fireplace. I carried things to and fro...and sometimes back to "to" again! I swear I heard keystone cop music in my head the whole time!I brought the chandeliers in from garage mahal and more frames, hung tapestries...Today is the day husband and I carry in the heaviest rugs known to mankind from the garage. How was that for poor sentence structure, eh? Nonetheless, the irony of the flying carpet does not escape me!
What beautiful vision and creativity you display! LOVE it! can't wait to see more!Have a beautiful day~;-D Kathleen
My first visit here. I am totally inspired!
